French President Emmanuel Macron announced on Tuesday that he “wishes” to run for presidential elections, but has not yet made a decision.
In an interview with the French newspaper “Le Parisien”, Macron said: “I would like to run. When my health conditions allow it and things are clear to me, and given the political equation, I will reveal the decision”.
In response to questions from readers of the newspaper, he added: “This decision has been consolidated in myself. I have to make sure I can get what I want. “
The French president recently pledged to respect democratic rights in the country, despite the fifth wave of the “Corona” virus.
A French government spokesman said Macron said “very clearly” that “democratic duties will be respected” at the height of a fifth wave of the Covid-19 epidemic.
Presenting the results of the French cabinet meeting, the spokesman, Gabriel Attal, said that “the issue is linked to the democratic life of our country”, stressing once again that “there is no project to postpone the presidential elections” on the table, under it, or in the treasure chest next to it.
Presidential and legislative elections
According to the announced calendar, France will attend the presidential elections next April and then the legislative elections in June.
And recent opinion polls indicate that Republicans’ access to the second round of the April 2022 elections is uncertain.
The most likely candidate so far is current President Emmanuel Macron, while far-right populist Marine Le Pen is currently in second place, according to polls.
Last July, the French government announced the calendar of presidential and legislative elections in the country.
President Emmanuel Macron was elected on May 7, 2017 for a five-year term and entered in upload on May 14, 2017.
